Chlorine Smell & Low Water Pressure Issues
Good afternoon Central Heights Water Customers:
We have been made aware of the chlorine smell in the Central Heights distribution system today. The City of Nacogdoches has experienced problems at their surface water treatment plant located at Lake Nacogdoches. We have been in contact with them several times this afternoon. Their crews have corrected the mechanical issue they experienced and are flushing the water lines that feeds Central Heights. We have been flushing the Central Heights Water System this afternoon as well. The low pressure that some of you are experiencing is a direct result of that extensive flushing.
While there may be concerns that elevated chlorine levels are a direct public health hazard, the current levels are within the TCEQ’s guidelines for water distribution systems in the state of Texas.
As of this post, we are not sure when the City of Nacogdoches will complete their flushing of their system, but we will continue to monitor and flush the system as needed.
